The download size for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD has been revealed. The action-adventure remake requires 2.6GB of free space to download from the Nintendo eShop for Wii U, according to the Japanese website for the game. The website also confirms that the game can be played using a Wii U Pro Controller. However, it doesn’t support the Wii Remote, Nunchuk or Wii Classic Controller. It was previously announced that the game will feature 1080p visuals. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD will be released in Japan on September 26th, and it arrives October in Europe and North America.



    • well tiny download sizes are a double edged sword.. of course it takes less time to download but size is usually directly proportional to graphic fidelity

      in this case it doesn’t really matter since it’s a remake and almost 3 times the size it was on gamecube… and it looks pretty neat

      but to complain about big files in general is just wrong


    • i did too, but apparently aLOT of people hated them

      the only thing that annoyed me most is FI, MORE SO THAN NAVI



        • At least she had an awesome several themes.

          These three make my point. Best one to me is Fi’s farewell theme.

          Fi: Master Snowman, I have something more to say. Though I was created to assist you in the goddess’ mission, I wanted to say before I enter a never ending slumber…T H A N K Y O U, G O O D B U Y F O R E V E R.

          Me: Bish, please! I’ll see you again. Go on, get outta here and sleep for a good 500 years for my reincarnated self grabs you again or until I play this game again.


      • Skyward Sword definitely took a lot of getting used to for me (I had Twilight Princess on the GameCube, but I didn’t get far in the Nintendo Selects version for Wii). I can’t say I hated the motion controls, but neither can I say I prefer them over the button controls. Heck, I think Skyward Sword made me love Ocarina of Time 3D just oh so much more.


  1. Alba tomorrow could you post the media create numbers for the weekstarting August 4 to August 11 for Japanese numbers. 50% of the total is all 3DS. Pikmin 3 was number 10 in most games sold with the 3DS dominating everything. It’s an interesting read for all Gamers. Wind Waker HD remastered is making me scrounge for loose pennies now, pro controller support is heaven sent :).


  2. If wind weaker hd doesn’t support classic controller, will the next smash bros game? I hope so, I can’t play smash bros without a GameCube controller.


  3. I dont remember when was the last time when 1 system had so much great exclusives comin on same year and when you count all those multiplats too you realize that you have to become an ultimate no life form in order to play them all and completely broke. WiiU is great system haters need to just deal with it. I never liked this console war business it clearly damages the minds of some who start to think that they are commanders in great war fightin for brand and for company. Do those people have jobs or life anyway?


    • There has been any consoles with that kind of exclusives coming in the same year and I mean from no one not even nintendo. This goes to show that Nintendo realy support his consoles. Wish the vita has such a opportunity.


  4. holy shit! only 2.6 gb, I’m fucking downloading that bitch. also thank your god it supports pro controller. no way I’m playing this game with that fucking gamepad.


  5. Don’t forget that the GameCube discs maximum capacity was 1.5 GB. It’s not wise to judge a game based on its capacity, otherwise you miss out on some great game.


  6. Let me see if I get this right, a GameCube game had a capacity of around 1.4GB, and with the “graphical update” I’m guessing this game really isn’t big in the content department.
    There are Wii U games that weight even 20GB or so, and they want me to pay the same amount of money for a 10 year old 2.6GB game? They have an issue here, unless they lower the price of this game to half what Wii U games often cost I am not buying it.
